King Khan & BBQ Head On National Fall Tour Starting This Month

King Khan & BBQ Head On National Fall Tour Starting This Month
LISTEN & SHARE: King Khan & BBQ Show - "Alone Again"

"Khan and Sultan may be devout rock'n'roll traditionalists at heart, but their deft balance of sweetness and insolence remains distinctly their own." - Pitchfork

"Whether alone or together, King Khan and BBQ dole out sweaty, dedicated subversion of ’60s garage tropes with a mischievous wink and a waggle of the hips." - Consequence Of Sound

"They’re stuck in the middle, two mutants hopelessly adrift in a sea of normalcy. " - A.V. Club
The King Khan and BBQ Show are embarking upon their 2016 North American tour starting October 27th in Seattle. Their newest record "Bad News Boys" (In The Red, 2015) was praised by Pitchfork who said that "the question of whether you need another record like this is ultimately answered by the fact that Khan and Sultan play like they need it, barreling through these 12 songs with audible smiles on their faces and a reinvigorated sense of camaraderie."

Over the last 10 years, the band has continuously released top-grade material on Crypt, In The Red, Norton, Fat Possum, Goner, and more, without bowing to business, succumbing to what’s ‘hip’, or changing.

They are real rock n’ roll soldiers, who have traveled the world with one of the best, most magical, energetic, crass and nonsensical free-form live shows, in a sincere effort to keep the music they love alive - BBQ smashing snare, bass drum and tambourine with his bare feet, molesting his guitar and singing like a possessed angel - Khan spinning and howling like amurderous dervish while belting it out on his guitar like a real gone savage.

Love songspunkers, improvised riot-starters, dance-floor shakers, sing-along stompers, wild rockers - you name it. They always drench the crowd in raw energy, and they're always the last ones dancing and drinking at the bar.

From youngsters to oldsters alike, their crowds sing along incessantly and let their freak-flags fly in joyous solidarity when The King Khan & BBQ Show hit the stage, clamouring like entranced dervishes to be a part of a growing phenomenon. Give into their spell and live forever.
